Menokin is the evocative remains of a National Historic Landmark now in a ruinous condition.  It was originally built for Francis Lightfoot Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and his wife, Rebecca Tayloe.  The mission of the Menokin Foundation is to preserve and interpret the home and life of patriot Francis Lightfoot Lee as a focus for better understanding the fields of history, architecture, archaeology, ecology and other areas of the humanities by developing innovative scholarship and new practices in conservation.  The Foundation is rehabilitating the 18th-century house in a revolutionary way: using structural glass to recreate an abstract memory of the house while protecting what remains of it today.  Visit for more information on the Menokin Glass Project, history environmental initiatives and opportunities to get involved.
